There’s a good chance you’ve heard of the poke bowl by now. This tasty food item that’s come to the mainland by way of Hawaii has single-handedly shifted the paradigm regarding the way Americans see fast food. And, like anything else that rises in popularity, there are bound to be some questions regarding the poke bowl. Therefore, we’re taking a few moments to answer some of the frequently asked questions from our customers.
What’s in a Poke Bowl?
While you’ve most likely heard of the poke bowl, you might have a lingering curiosity about the ingredients. It’s our pleasure to go over them. It all starts with rice, though we can substitute a tasty spring veggie mix or quinoa. Next up, a delicious protein. The traditional offering for a poke bowl is salmon or tuna, but we also have chicken, spam, and tofu for those of you who are abstaining from meat.
Are Poke Bowls Healthy?
One poke bowl has fewer calories than a single cheeseburger, is made from fresh ingredients, and is free of sodium and preservatives synonymous with many fast food chains. Made in the same amount of time, the poke bowl is low on gluten, fat, and calories. And for those who are looking to eat healthier in the year ahead, it’s the very best place to start.
I Have a Gluten-Free Diet; Can I Still Eat Poke?
Once again, the answer is a resounding yes. At Island Fin Poke, in particular, all of our soy sauces are gluten-free, and we have bases such as brown rice and a spring vegetable mix for people who are looking to explore healthier options.
What are Some of the Health Benefits of Poke Bowls?
Because one of the main ingredients in a traditional poke bowl is fish, you’re serving your body great by consuming some servings. Fish have high concentrations of protein and fatty acids such as Omega-3s that are very beneficial for supporting heart health.
